A Fold Apart just might be the sweet story, puzzle game combo you need right now. The gameplay puts you in a paper world and tasks you with solving puzzles by folding parts of that world. The trailer shows you folding a page to make a bridge accessible. It also shows you folding vertically and falling to reach another area.
The underlying story is full of that sweetness I mentioned. The goal of solving the puzzles is to keep a long-distance couple (the type of couple can be selected) together. As you solve more than fifty puzzles, you’ll open up more of the story by showing the text messages between the couple. The press release I have mentions miscommunication and emotional rollercoaster, so it sounds as if they have it right.
A Fold Apart is coming to the PS4 on May 19th. Check out the trailer to have your heartstrings tugged a bit, and prepare to dive into the complexities of puzzles in a papercraft world and the complexities of communication between two people in a relationship. I’ll let you decide which one is harder to unravel.

Jason became terminally addicted to videogames after receiving the NES at an early age. This addiction grew to include PC gaming and was cemented with the launch of the PS2. From then on, he was afflicted with epic RPGs, tense shooters, and deep strategy games, never becoming skillful, but never able to quit. He continues to play games (poorly) and share his passion for them to anyone willing to listen.
